Totally. I'm surprised more attention isn't paid to the fact that we will need to recolonize if our species is to survive. Granted, if a bunch of nerdz (I use the term endearingly) on a pedal forum are discussing it, there's got to be at least a subcommittee or something. I think they'd likely be hush hush about it as to not upset anyone. It's kind of a bummer though, when I bring this kind of stuff up to who don't really know me, people who are on the level of "work friends" or less, they look at me like i'm the one who's insane. It's just completely off of their radar.

juansolo, I hate to say I completely agree, but unfortunately, I do. It seems in my mind that the most pressing matter facing everyone everywhere is the alarming rate at which we are destroying the only space ship we really have. And resources continue being devoted to things which further our decline rather than elevate us to our maximum potential as a species. Case in point: less bombs, more science.

I worry that the motivations behind the most recent drive for the democratization of space travel are fundamentally centered around exploiting a new revenue source rather than pushing any sort of boundary (regardless of what the forward facing message of such ventures are). I don't mean to sound completely cynical; there are definitely things I remain hopeful about. As bean said, this is at least a small and necessary step forward. The Carl Sagan pale blue dot quote comes to mind. I just hope we don't end up at the bottom of the hole we are digging before we realize we can't get out, no matter how clever we are.

Jon, that's my favorite kurt (aside from galapagos). Funny, I started reading again a few days ago!

I've had that discussion with friends on a few occasions, but its usually of the following variety: If you were given the option to be sent into interstellar space (lets say we can go half light speed, relativistic/ time dilation issues be damned-you aren't returning) on a ship with all provisions needed to survive and be occupied (a bench and supplies plz) for the rest of your life, would you? The only caveat; you're alone, and you communication with others will be limited to the first year or two of your travels. I think i'd say yes.

Small bear stocks them, but I don't know where you are so shipping might be a pain.

Connect that leg to the closest ground you can find.

No, the cathode goes to a lug on the 3PDT switch (or a pad on a 3PDT wiring board) that is only grounded when the effect is switched on...a la the standard wiring diagram.  Otherwise the LED will be on all the time.
He's right, I assumed we were at the switch without reading further. Sorry!

Edit: Actually, I don't know what I was thinking. Stupid fast reply.

After about 2 years of using spray clear, I recently (10 or so builds ago) switched to the 'tex and have been wondering why I didn't start sooner. It offers a beautiful finish, is rock hard, and pretty easy to use. In fact, even my first time using it came out great, So I definitely have no complaints.

If you could post a picture of the top and bottom of your vero, it would be helpful. You may actually want to do this in the tech help section of the forum as well, but I'll take a look if you want to post it here. If you're using the same transistors as recommended on that layout you shouldn't need to bend any legs.
